Key Lime Pie For Your Soul!

Got the summer citrus dessert cravings yet? Maybe you just want a vacation in your mouth. This is a super simple, hard to botch freezer dessert. I've already eaten two of these. So, I had to get photos before my hubs ate the other half of the batch. I usually don't tell people (at potlucks etc.) what is in my pie or puddings, because some people haven't eaten the main ingredient before. It's the amazing, beautiful, ugly, don't judge a book by it's cover avocado!

OK, you MIGHT have heard Avocados are the shiz nit. Here is some general info, just in case.

I could do a month of posts on avocado recipes alone. It never fails me. It's good in just about everything, my favorite way is right off the pit. It makes a great snack, meal, supplement, thickener, savory, sweet friend to just about .. everything.

The avocado pudding/pie has certainly been done before. Although I find most recipes for raw desserts a little heavy on the nuts, too sweet and too complicated, although almost always beautiful.

This is EASY. (and way healthier than the SAD version!) And you can use this as a template for any 'pie' you want to invent. Changing up the filling when needed. I've made this pie with Cocao, banana, strawberries and plain vanilla bean (and coconut meat). The only thing is when you get into blueberries, mango etc.. you'll need to sub part or all of the avocado with nuts, more oil or psyllium, irish moss etc. It's a big experiment, that's for sure.. and there may be times you eat it out of a bowl, but that's okay! Remember that the coconut oil is important. When it freezes, it makes your filling a custard-cheesecake consistency. A blender is nice for this, but if you have the patience, you can hand whip the avocado. Halving this recipe doesn't work so well. It can be a pain to get the blender really going with a smaller amount than this. Besides, this is so good, you'll wish you made more!

Jo's Key Lime Pie (6 smallish servings)

2 Avocados
2 Tbs Lime Juice
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (did I say it was low fat? Whoops)
2 Tbs Raw Honey (any honey really, I don't favor date syrup with this, experiment)

1/2 Cup Almond Pulp (I used leftovers from making milk- finely ground almonds/almond flour will work)
1/2 Cup Dates (not soaked)
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Cayenne (may think I'm crazy.. that's just how I like it..the spicy/sweet thing)

*Blend all filling ingredients together. Set aside.
*For the crust, process dates and almond pulp (and salt/cayenne) together until smooth(ish).
*Press the crust into greased or lined muffin tins (or custard dish, whatever you've got really).
*Spoon in filling. Freeze for 1-2 hours.. if it freezes hard, like ice cream, just leave out for 5 minutes before eating (of course you could have key lime pudding instead of freezing, but chill first for best taste.

If you love this and want to make it for a potluck, grab a spring form pan (smallish), double/triple the recipe and top with shredded coconut for looks, and taste- coconut loves lime- you know.. put da lime in da coconut?

  1. nice blog! Love the pictures and recipes (=

  2. Looks delicious! We'd like to invite you to submit this to our blog: Thanks!

  3. Is the nutritional information for one serving or the whole recipe?

  4. I think the decimal point is in the incorrect spot on the carb count =) This looks amazing - can't wait to make this!

  5. This is positively scrumptious!!! I added a tad more honey and because I used lemon juice I added a bit more for tang. The cayenne idea was brilliant. Making this for Sunday's luncheon. People won't even know what they're eating. Thanks!

  6. OMG! Just stumbled across this gem as we were looking for a worthy use for our leftover almond pulp. Wow! Can't wait to try it.

  7. I tried this recipe last night and added a bit of lime zest to the mix. I will probably add more lime next time and make sure the filling is whiped really well (I used my hand blender but when it froze there were definitely chucks of the coconut oil). The crust was PERFECT! Will use that more often. Now to try the "cheescake" recipe!

  10. Looks great! I am making it this weekend. Can you tell me how to make almond pulp?

  11. Looks great, but I wonder if your carb information is correct... That's more than most people eat in a day!

  12. I'm sorry to say this was just horrible. I quadrupled the recipe to make it in a springform pan and it came out so very oily, it is inedible. I kept the proportions the same and I let it freeze overnight, but it tastes like chapstick. I think maybe coconut milk (or cocount cream from the top of the can) instead of some or all of the oil might be a huge improvement. Or agar-agar flakes.

    The crust was good, and I have some left over.

    1. I too found the crust delicious but the filling disgusting. Think I might prefer key lime chapstick to this inedible foodstuff... and we love avocados!

  13. I have made this mistake before. Yet I still tried this recipe. Avocados have no place in a dessert! So gross. My 19 month old daughter liked it, but she has never had real key lime pie before. ;)

  14. I'm sorry to say, but this was awful. My boyfriend loves key lime pie so I made this for him and he could barely eat it. It tastes like a giant avocado. :(

  15. I just noticed you call for unsoaked dates. I bought dehydrated dates today, should I soak them?

  16. I like the chocolate & avocado desserts I've tried, but I couldn't get this recipe to work for me. Not sure if it was user error or just not a recipe I prefer. I added extra lime juice & zest, but I could still taste the avocado, and the texture was oily. I did use expeller-pressed coconut oil, so maybe I'll try again with a smaller batch sometime using virgin coconut oil. Maybe the stronger coconut flavor of virgin oil would help matters.

  19. This recipe was great! I doubled the recipe and made in a pie plate. it was definitely a crowd pleaser! If you have problems with the consistency being too oily, just keep blending! I put the filling ingredients in the blender and re-stirred several times, adjusting the power levels frequently. it finally turned into a pudding-like texture. yum!!!

  20. I just missed the filling and I have to agree, just tastes like a giant avocado...I'm disappointed that I just wasted all of that coconut oil and avocado...maybe I'll save it in the fridge as a face mask?

  21. Tasted more like frozen avacado to me. But I like the crust I ground almonds in my magic bullet to make it. Will use that as a base again.

  22. So simple! It’s smooth and perfect!

  23. I just love your recipes! I am now one of your "followers".


  24. Hello Run Hard Eat Clean, I love this post of yours on key lime pie made with avocados, your pictures are gorgeous too. I’ve featured your post on my blog with a link to your site.
    “Its 9 sinfully delicious desserts for coconut lovers” I hope thats alright with you. :) Thanks! Have a great day!

  25. Tastes great! Was NOT oily or avocado tasting. The others must have put too much oil in or too little lime juice. I made it without the crust and just as good. Will make again!

  26. Just made this and I was in heaven!! I'm not sure how other people could not like this?? Mine was perfect but I did taste along the way and adjust to my liking (I always use recipes as a base template). I used lemon instead of lime...added alittle extra plus the zest. Also I used a combo of xylitol and coconut sugar (I know I know on the Xylitol but I wanted as little sugar as possible without sacrificing taste)

  27. Does it really have 276 g of carbs? :(

  28. There couple of fascinating points at some point in this posting but I don’t determine if these people center to heart.
